The codex contains not only a translation of the Greek text but also with genuine Slavic writing and elementary-complilative compositions containing a unique originality. The total assortment of themes addressed in this codex reaches from the official, homiletic-hagiographical range across church legalities and apophthegmatic topics of low authority to apocryphal and half-apocryphal bibliographies with eschatological or prognostic themes. Separately emphasized are amongst others, the well known struggle between body and soul; the sensory picture parabola of the blind and the lame, a hymn about the hl. Paraskeue-Petka as well as the middle-Bulgarian treatment of the Chrabr-Traktats across to the Constantine creation of the Slavic alphabet. Therefore this codex also sets a very high benchmark from a linguistic perspective even though it is incompletely preserved and holds the same importance for the Slavic people as well as the Byzantine and also the Canonistic oriented theologian.
International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.
If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
